With aspirations and hopes for new distinctions and medals, the Greek athletes who will represent Greece at the Tokyo Paralympic Games left, with the support of OPAP, Major Sponsor of the Greek Paralympic Committee.
The big celebration of sports, which will be held from August 24 to September 5, will be attended by a total of 46 Greek athletes, who will compete in 11 sports.
Specifically, the members of the Greek delegation will participate in the following competitions:
• Track and field
• Swimming Weightlifting on a bench
• Wheelchair Fencing
• Wheelchair Tennis
• Ping pong
In the Rio Games, in 2016, Greece had collected 13 medals (5 gold, 4 silver, 4 bronze), occupying the 24th place in the medal table. It was the second best place in the history of the Greek delegation, after the 20th in Beijing.
The Hellenic Paralympic Committee said goodbye to the members of the Greek delegation with a brilliant event before their departure from “Eleftherios Venizelos”.
